I'm most interested in the shampoo bars.

This year I'm going to give mostly homemade edible goodies (made from plastic-free products, of course) wrapped in pretty paper or cloth.

Thanks for making this connection Beth. It's so important to see the whole picture.

On the rare occasions (these days) hen I fly, I usually refuse the drinks and snacks on offer because of all the plastic waste, and just bring my own. I just posted on Virgin's blog telling them how pleased I was they were taking steps to reduce their plastic waste, and urged them to keep up and extend their efforts. I've always thought of Virgin as the 'fun' airline to fly, and now I like them even more. Beth, thanks so much for working with them!

Great post, Beth. You make some excellent points that I will borrow when writing to manufacturers about their packaging. Thanks.

Beth, I've been looking in vain for plastic- and toxin-free sunscreen for ages, so thanks a bazillion for this sunscreen info!

I adore Greece, and feel Pam's pain on discovering this blight on a beautiful landscape. Of course no place on earth is free from the plastic plague anymore. Good for her for bringing attention to this phenomenon in such a creative way.

Here's my comment on their Turtleback's fan page:

'I understand your intent is to provide people with a useful way to hold their drinks. However, selling a plastic item for use at the beach does not strike me as a good idea at all. I do beach cleanups and the amount of plastic items that wash up on shore or get left behind is truly appalling. It's unsightly, and worse, marine animals ingest this stuff and can die from it. Please rethink this unnecessary and potentially harmful item.'
